If you want to learn a cool technique for creating backgrounds for your handmade cards, check out this video on the Sponged Background Technique!
I showed you the first card I made with a sponged background in this post about a month ago: Wetlands Stamp Set. Since then, I’ve been experimenting with the technique so I could make a video for you. The basic technique involves sponging ink onto Shimmery White Card stock to create a “scene,” then stamping an image on top of it.
Here’s another sample with the same beach scene as the Wetlands card. The image stamped on top of the background is from the Daisy Delight Stamp Set, which isn’t available until June 1st in the new 2017 Annual Catalog from Stampin’ Up!
I wanted to to try a sunset background, but after I finished it, I realized it’s more of a sunrise scene. The stamp set is Lovely as a Tree. One of the reason I made these cards is I need some masculine cards to have on hand, since most of my cards are flowery girlie cards. 🙂
Here’s the video:

I hope you’re inspired to try the Sponge Background Technique you learned in the video for your handmade cards!
